Feb. 24, 2009, 6:50 p.m. (ET)

One of the largest one-day collegiate handball events, at University of Central Florida, highlights a busy handball weekend on college campuses.

At UCF, nearly 40 teams will participate in a one-day tournament, a collaboration between the school's intramural department and Southeast Regional Director Dominique Dumont.

After competition, a two-hour developmental clinic and introduction to USATH will be held for interested athletes. Florida handball vets Jim Thome, Sean Craft, Mostafa Sallam, Wessam Rizk and others will assist Dumont in further introducing handball to UCF student athletes.

Chicago Inter, Army (two teams), Cortland State/New England Freeze, North Pitt HS, Furman and the University of North Carolina (two teams) are registered in this event which is not sanctioned by USATH.

Finally, in Provo, Utah, the BYU Cougars Handball Club conducts its first practice at the Richards Building. BYU's club is founded by student Andrew Tiu, advised by BYU Varsity soccer coach Chris Watkins and will be coached by USATH's Marko Brezic. For more information, visit
